Partner Pickup Locations. When you register with Happy Food Co and place an order, you will be asked to set a location for delivery and pickup. By setting a location, you represent and warrant you are authorized to receive delivery and pickup at the selected location. The Sites will specify the onsite locations for order pickup.

Some retail partners may serve as resellers for Products & Services with purchase occurring at the point of sale.
Cancellation Policy. Meal kit purchases may be cancelled prior to 12:00 AM on the Delivery Date by accessing the Upcoming Orders in the My Account section of the Sites.

4.7. Pricing and Availability
All prices are shown in U.S. dollars and applicable taxes and other charges, if any, are additional. We reserve the right to adjust prices as we may determine in our sole discretion, at any time and without notice.
All of our Products are subject to availability, and we reserve the right to impose quantity limits on any Order, to reject all or part of an Order, to discontinue offering certain Products and to substitute Products (including, but not limited to, specific meal ingredients) without prior notice. We strive to provide you with high-quality Products, and given the perishable nature of certain Products and market conditions beyond our control, we may be required to make substitutions from time to time. If you are not satisfied with a substitution, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will collect applicable sales tax on Products delivered to the states, county and municipal jurisdictions for which we determine we have a duty to collect sales tax. If an item is subject to sales tax, you agree that the amount of taxes shown at checkout may be adjusted. Several factors may cause this, such as variances between processor programs and changes in tax rates.
4.10. Deliveries; Missed Pickup
Deliveries. Our meal kits are stored in refrigerators onsite at partner locations where temperature control is maintained. You are responsible for inspecting all Products you receive from us for any damage or other issues upon pickup. In addition, you are solely responsible for determining the freshness of the Products you receive. You should always inspect your delivery to confirm that the meal ingredients arrive in a cool, refrigerated condition. If you have any reason to believe that any Product in your delivery is not suitable for consumption, contact us at email@example.com and discard the item. To maintain the quality and integrity of the Products, we recommend that you immediately refrigerate all perishable Products upon delivery and follow the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (“USDA”) instructions on refrigeration and food safety. From the time of delivery, the condition and consumption of the Products are solely at your risk, and you are solely responsible for the proper and safe washing, handling, preparation, storage, cooking, use and consumption of the Products following delivery. We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions be followed and that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all meat, poultry, seafood and other applicable items are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here. Failure to follow safe food handling practices and temperature recommendations may increase the risk of foodborne illness. In addition, pregnant women, young children, the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems should follow the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s recommendations on food consumption for at-risk groups, which can be found here.
Missed Pickup. Failure to pickup an order upon delivery may result in the loss of your order.

By opting out of binding arbitration, you are agreeing to resolve Disputes in accordance with Section 19.
19. Governing Law and Venue
These Terms, your access to and use of the Sites and your order, receipt and use of the Products shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Kansas, without regard to conflict of law rules or principles (whether of the State of Kansas or any other jurisdiction) that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. Any Dispute between the parties that is not subject to arbitration or cannot be heard in small claims court, shall be resolved in the state or federal courts of the State of Kansas and the United States, respectively, sitting in the State of Kansas, County of Johnson.
